If you're down and dirty doing business in Chennai or Mumbai, you'll probably need to ask your local channel representative about these phones.
Android Nougat doesn't even notch one full percentage point, but at least Android 2.2 has finally lost its 0.1 percent of share.
Does it have a Snapdragon 820? Nope. It is an entry-level phone that is meant to transfer older form factor users to something with modern software.
Marshmallow continues to grow, but at a slower pace when compared to Android Lollipop's launch window. When will Nougat make its way to 0.1%?

WIndows 10 Home and Android 5.1 will be on the fully-funded GOLE1 PC, touted as the "smallest Intel All-in-One PC in the world".
Android 6.0 snagged all the growth from the other versions of the OS this month, but it's growth over the past six months is now slower than Lollipop.

Elephone has been a Chinese OEM we’ve been tracking for a bit with some boundary-pushing devices. Included in its roster is the “Vowney,” which came out in May of this year with a spectacular set of specs behind Android. We’re talking about it once again, this time with even beefier specs and a change in operating system.
Version A of the Vowney, the Android 5.0 phone, featured a 5.5-inch QHD display, 3GB RAM with 64GB flash storage, a 21-megapixel Sony sensor, a 3,850mAh battery and a MediaTek MT6795 processor (octa-core at 2.2GHz). There’s also a [...]
Lollipop’s troubles have been made very visible by the tech media to the national media. In the second case, it was with Android 5.0’s Stagefright vulnerabilities that led to the pouring of vows to step up security updates. And while the move to Marshmallow is ongoing and might bring a whole new slew of scrutinizing eyes to the Android platform, some phones will have the dubious honor of carrying Lollipop as their mature version of the OS.

And every phone has the basics dressed up in a different way. Be it the calendar or SMS or the darn calculator, every OEM wants to put their colors and shapes in the way they want. Let’s face it: GUIs can look gooey.
Of course, if you don’t agree with the way your smartphone decided to do up a dialer, you have your choices. This is Android, after all. And from scanning a lot of comments, I can [...]
